Since the Opium War (1839-1842) for the entire next century, the Chinese people suffered imperialistic aggression at home and racial discrimination abroad. The United States of America in its racial discriminative immigration policy toward China set a bad example followed by Canada, Australia and New Zealand. It passed four different periods: free, prohibitive, restricted and equal. During these periods, the four countries clearly excluded the Chinese as a very dissimilar race not suitable for assimilation.  This kind of the first national act in the United States was the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. The four countries had the similar immigration policies with an intention to control the coming of the Chinese laborers and to deny their privilege of application for citizenship after they entered. Under the helpless circumstances, most of them were pushed into so-called Chinatowns leading miserable lives. It is not until the new U.S. Immigration Act of 1965, giving equal status to all countries, did the Chinese situation in the English-speaking Pacific basin countries change. And these changes evidently affected the change of the immigrant road-map.
